A Call to Action

On Linux International, SIIA, the Gnome Foundation and the Linux Professional Institute.
GNOME Foundation

The GNOME Foundation (http://www.gnome.org/) released GNOME version 1.4, a mature, stable release of the desktop environment. The release includes a host of cool bells and whistles, as well as some additional packages, including Nautilus, Eazel's file management system. The release represents a big step forward for GNOME, moving more solidly in the usability and power category.

GNOME 1.4 has extensive documentation available through the Help tab. It is available for download on a number of mirror sites that can be reached through http://www.gnome.org/ and will be available in many distributions. Check the web site to get information on the most current ways to get GNOME 1.4.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
